Construction Defect - Litigation Support Questionnaire

The critical issue in Construction defect litigation is extrapolating the defect rate estimated by the destructive sample to the units not tested.  The rules of statistics imply that such extrapolation is valid only if the units tested were drawn randomly from the population of units in the subject class.  When sampling is based on voluntary participation by home owners, the result is a tested sample that over-represents defective units and under-represents non-defective units, due to participation bias.

As forensic statisticians we provide a sampling protocol for destructive testing which is designed to obtain an accurate estimate of the defect rate for the subject population.  We also evaluate the sampling protocols used by plaintiffs' experts to produce cost of repair estimates.

To ensure the accuracy of our estimate and to yield the quickest turn-around time, we ask you to take the time to fill out as much information as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.
